Got Verse?

From my Sunday Brunch column at All Things Girl:

April is National Poetry Month, at least in the USA, and the eighteenth is the day we’re supposed to acknowledge the poems we carry in our pockets. Most of my clothes don’t even have pockets, and the only poetry I write is not for public consumption, but I’ve loved poetry since I was young enough to embrace A.A. Milne (he wrote SO much more than just Winnie the Pooh) and eschew Dr. Seuss (sorry but his silly sing-song-y stuff does nothing for me), so I thought I’d chat about that today.

One thought on “Got Verse?

  1. I’ve never carried a poem in my pocket, but I carry many favorites in memory, with me at all times, all weather, all states of dress and undress.

    And it doesn’t take much to get me started quoting said poetry, either. My secretary, when she had had enough, would tell me to go back to my office. “Go to your room, Sarah!” she’d say.

    It was only after I had retired that she admitted that she enjoyed the poetry, the quotations from Shakespeare, etc., and that mostly she was teasing me.

    Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace from day to day….
